How many simultaneous users can a single access point support?
The number of simultaneous users that an access point can support depends primarily on the amount of data traffic encountered (heavy downloads and uploads vs. light). Bandwidth is shared among users; different clients will have different coverage and different performance. Network performance, as gauged by the number of simultaneous users, is contingent upon the type of activity engaged in by users. We recommend that no more than 30 wireless nodes attach to an Access Point.
